First Day of School and Birthday Fun

First Day of School

Hannah and Zach had their first day of school a few weeks ago. I can't believe my little guy is in kindergarten and I have a second grader! I am getting old! Anyways, we don't have a lot of pics because it's been a bit hectic around here. The kids are liking school and we are back to being busy, busy, busy between school, soccer, and another kid! My parents have been here for the last few weeks and have been great with the kids.
Zach had his 5th birthday and it was really low key, which was nice. We had the Bean's over and just had cake and ice cream because Ella was only a week old. He didn't care and had fun with his gifts. He is such a sweet boy with such a kind heart. He came up to Jon and me the other day and said, "Dad, I don't have a mean bone in my body do I?" He loves Ella so much and is constantly kissing her. He is loving Kindergarten and his teacher and right now he LOVES painting and drawing. He can be found EVERY DAY after school, asking if he can paint and draw. He also refuses to throw away his art, so we have a TON of it.

We have been having so much fun having another baby here and we call her Ponga. Don't ask me why, but that's how it goes. Here is a picture of her at 4 weeks old, isn't she darling? I know I am biased but she is so beautiful and so good! She is almost an exact replica of Hannah. It's funny, I think Jon and I only make one type of boy and one type of girl! Good thing they are cute! I actually wrote this post over a month ago but am just now posting it, so if the dates don't add up, that's why. Elle is almost 2 months old today and is sleeping at night. She only gets up a few times and I couldn't be happier! She is such a mellow, content baby, she even has Jon wrapped around her little tiny finger.
Here is a pic of her at 6 weeks! Anyways, the other kids are doing great. They are AMAZING with Ella and love her....maybe a little too much at times but they are very gentle. I'll be better about updating now that things have quieted down and we've gotten into a routine.

I didn't realize you posted. I hate when the posts do that. Ella is just too cute. I love that sweet small stage.
